There is little question that Volkswagen’s VW camper vans are some of the most popular camper vans there are. As soon as they appeared on the scene, in the 1950’s, families began taking them on vacation. Today, there are a lot of different types of VW camper vans for sale, offering something for everyone.
After realizing how popular these vehicles were, other companies soon rushed into making a variety of different camper vans and trailers too. Today there are many different types to choose from, ranging from the RV toy haulers to huge camper vans that are almost as large as a mobile home! Even so, Volkswagen still seems to have the edge on other camper vans, for several reasons.
Of course, you will need to decide between a new and a used VW camper van. The plus with the newer models is that they are quite a bit more spacious than the older ones; they can sleep four adults quite comfortably. The older style ones are fine for a small family, with a couple of kids. Also, you will find that the newer the van, the more features it has.
In comparison with other similar camper vans, the VW campers are usually quite a bit less expensive to buy initially. They are also cheaper to run when it comes to keeping them topped up with gas–so much so, that you can use them as a regular vehicle for every day use.
When it comes time to actually buy one, you may want to check in your local area to see if anyone has any to sell. Sometimes they will appear in the classifieds in your area. You can also buy them online of course, with both eBay and Craigslist being a good place to start looking. Finally, you will find that many dealers sell both new and used ones.
